Inkjet printers that rival laser printers
Print and save more with Epson’s new compact integrated ink tank system printers.
Does your inkjet printer run out of ink very quickly, even though you don’t print a lot? And do you feel the pinch when paying for the costly replacement toner cartridges?
If so, it’s time to take a look at Epson’s new compact integrated ink tank system printers. Fitted with integrated ink tanks that can be easily refilled with affordable high yield ink bottles, these printers are able to print several thousands of pages, compared to conventional laser printers that can only print a fraction of that.
Epson, which has been making ink tank system printers since 2010, has just introduced its latest lineup, with five new models offering faster speeds, enhanced features, and a more compact design.
For a start, the new ink tank printers – L6190, L6170, L6160, L4160, L4150 – have their ink tanks integrated into the unit, instead of protruding from the side like past models. This means the new printers take up less space, and you can quickly determine remaining ink levels from the front.
Each replacement ink bottle’s nozzle is also uniquely shaped, so each bottle can only fit its own tank, eliminating refill errors and spillage during refill. Better yet, a single black ink bottle, which costs just $14.90, is able to print 7,500 pages in mono; and a set of color ink bottles, which costs $9.90 each, is able to print 6,000 pages in color. That’s equivalent to about ve standard toners of a conventional laser printer! You can also print on both sides of the paper to further reduce costs.
Featuring a 30-sheet automatic document feeder, a fax function, and support for mobile and cloud printing, the L6190 is suitable for small and medium-sized enterprises. The L6170 omits the fax function but retains the useful ADF. Smaller businesses that don’t need the ADF for multi-page scanning jobs can turn to the L6160, which also has a print speed of 15 ipm for mono and 8.0 ipm for color.
The L4160 is particularly great for home users looking for a multifunction printer with a low running cost. This auto duplex-capable printer has a top print speed of 10.5 ipm for mono and 5 ipm for color, and like all the other new models, is capable of borderless photo printing at up to A4. Finally, the L4150 offers exceptional value for the money: it uses the same long-lasting ink tanks as the others, and despite the small size, is also a multifunction device capable of wireless and mobile printing.
So don’t be fooled into buying cheap printers that use small and expensive ink cartridges because you’ll end up paying more in the long run. To print more and save more, check out Epson’s ink tank system printers today.
